Breaking into a Garage takes.....6 seconds (Video)

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty CA license 01873017


I don't know how paranoid to feel about this info that Joni Kerley posted. I don't think of Davis or Woodland as being high crime areas, but there are always people out there who are ready to take advantage of an unlocked door. If this really is as easy the video clip makes it seem then a garage door might as well be unlocked.

Guess I will have to try this on my own garage door and then think about the preventative measures outlined below.

It Only Take 6 Seconds to Break into Your Garage!

A fellow agent emailed me this video to pass on to my clients and I couldn't believe how easy this is.  

Here is what  you have to do to make this even harder for someone to break in to your home is.

  1. Cut off the Pull Cord 
  2. Push the lever UP and zip tie to the slider bar.  This way they need to cut the zip tie to lower the lever.

Pass this helpful information on to all your clients and remember the next time you are doing a home inspection you might point this out to your home inspector.

Gordon - I saw this once before and it is truly scary how fast this can happen.
